    not possible shooting harpoon rapidly or is it me?

    Unlike the sniper rifle that can fire fairly rapidly, the harpoon can't do that.
    This has always been the case and I never understood why.
    I'm in a situation where I must shoot harpoon 3 times to eliminate a 3-men patrol squad.
    There's no other way.
    By the time I can shoot a second time the alarm is already on.
    Am I doing something wrong or is there a trick to it?

    In BEL you'll have to deselect the harpoon after the first shot (right mouse-click), press "J" (hotkey for the harpoon) and kill the next soldier. If you do this quickly, you can eliminate the 3 men patrol.

    I finally managed to find a way into the camp, I think (SINP, mission 6)
    This is the situation



    Ofcourse I tried your suggestion, zeppelin, but almost immediately after the first shot the soldier besides his killed comrade already shouts "ein Verletzter", which triggers the alarm.
    Well, maybe I'm too slow
    So I'll keep on trying to deselect and press "J" faster still.

    And ..... some time later .....
    Shooting the left one first and then the right one didn't work, despite numerous attempts.
    Then I tried the left one and next the front one (seemed not obvious to me) .... haha that worked!
    Now all the patrols gone, it should be much easier to get in.

    ..... and it was .....!
    All in all these 6 missions were very fun to play, not easy though.
    Appreciating the hard work and looking forward to next mission(s).
